Breakdown: Penetration of Renewable Energy in Selected Markets

Hi: Nuclear better than coal... not really... Coal can not render the earth uninhabitable on its own, radiation can...
Nuclear exists for one and only one reason. War, I.E. bombs...

PS: US numbers pathetic as usual...

Fighting Blackouts: Japan Residential PV and Energy Storage Market Flourishing

Hi: Storage is great but why would anyone go Li when weight is not an issue?? My PV system has backup, 32 KWH for about $3500 in lead acid. SO $11K for less than 5 KWH to me is like buying gold plated batteries...
Poor choice for a non mobile storage medium...

Fighting Blackouts: Japan Residential PV and Energy Storage Market Flourishing

Hi #11: As backup power a 5 year lead acid can do 7 to 10 years if maintained correctly. As backup, its life is really just sitting with occasional over charge to balance and shake up the acid. Perhaps the price difference did not fully sink in. $11,000 for 5 KWH is $2200 per KWH!! $3600 for 32 KWH is about $110 per KWH!! That's a TWENTY FOLD DIFFERENCE!! Even at a life of only 5 years on the lead acid, for equal money that's 100 years before I would pay the Li cost... I do everything on a shoe string $$ wise, no choice.
If you have the money available and have physical limitations, fine.. but other wise I can think of better things to do with a twenty fold difference....

Europe Sinks Its Flagship Carbon Trading Scheme

Hi: O&G in all its forms is much more powerful than any given country. In all practical terms they control the world. Is it really such a stretch to say that? After all, if you control energy you control the world, for EVERYTHING requires energy to function, including us. The only thing more powerful to control than energy is the weather. This is why you see upticks in RE and then all of a sudden it gets knocked down.

Look at bio diesel in the US. It was going hell bent upward making some REAL inroads. Then, along comes an article in a major magazine "of the times" twisting and distorting the truth about the fuel and wham. Demand dries up and the market collapses. Do you think that article just happened along.... and as usual the masses swallow it hook line and sinker as being the truth. They can't see "through the mist" if their lives depended on it, which actually it does.....

Europe Sinks Its Flagship Carbon Trading Scheme

Hi: Phil, I am surprised you disagree... I do not disagree with what you wrote at all... The example of bio was just that, an example, of how O&G stops anything that threatens their cash flow... Cars can go full electric now tech wise but bio D. is needed for heavy equipment, bull dossers, 18 wheelers, dump trucks, earth movers, etc.. It needs to be there as a transition until energy densities rise to handle that level. I agree, it all rests with the people but that to a certain degree is anti-climatic...
And #8.. Hydrogen is an energy carrier, not a net gain source..

America's Real Problem with Solar Energy

Hi: Well said Patrick #14.. The reality of a currency based world is in direct conflict with what is the best engineering for us on this planet. People always seem to look to business for the solution yet it is our entire BUSINESS that is the problem. Its like expecting someday that a totally Psychotic, Asocial, Amoral human animal will walk up to you and say, "I want to join the Peace Corps". It simply is not possible.

America's Real Problem with Solar Energy

Hi: "If only we could wean people from the desire for profit. I am unfamiliar with any such plan. Perhaps we could start with getting people to work for an hour a day for free. Or maybe decree that corporations and businesses operate at breakeven or at a loss. Taxing profits at 110% should do it for most cases."

WOW Mr "M"!! I can see you fully comprehend the depth of my statement, and judging from the rest of your multiple posts, it is clear that you have a wonderful understanding of the world today, including solar...

America's Real Problem with Solar Energy

Hi: Larry, "It would appear there is a similarity between a person's closed mind in regard to renewable energy and its benefits and the willing acceptance of the boiler plate story on what happened on 911."

Great analogy Larry... What I always love about the Conspiracy Theory "knockers" is if they are right in that there are none (True CT's), they don't realize the obvious logical consequences. A Conspiracy Theory is really nothing more that a probable stab at the REAL truth of an event. Now, I am not talking about the crazy and nonsense "stuff" which is just put out there as distraction and noise. I mean a real alternate. But if the "boiler plate", as you correctly call it, is the only game in town, and all else is CT nonsense, then IT MUST BE TRUE that it is the correct and whole truth! I.E. The story put out by the puppeteers never lies or misinforms!! WOW!! What an amazing revelation!! THERE WERE WMD's after all, clean coal and no one as ever died from peaceful Nuclear energy!! LOL!! IT MUST BE TRUE. You just have to love the arrogance of wealth and power after 2000 years...

America's Real Problem with Solar Energy

Hi: The point here gentlemen is that the problem in this world is concentrated wealth. When allowed to occur it always results in a world like today (All the above and more) heading for Dystopia followed by the big "R" in a bad and inefficient way. I just wish the masses for once would practice the big "R" smartly. But I guess that is just asking to much of them. When the carpenter throws a hammer at them, they feel compelled to fight with the hammer rather than the carpenter....

Energy Efficiency Stocks Rally on Shaheen-Portman Bill

Hi:

Our Congress is not dis-functional. It is bought and paid for and is operating in accordance with the holders of its value. It just so happens that the holders of its value are elitists of the .001% and everyone else is expendable....
